Thank you to Marie, for hosting this party at the French Fractice.
For Postcard friendship Friday I have:
A postcard dated Jan. 1, 1913, postmarked Los Angeles.
All are well. was down to Pasadena today to see the floral Parade Uncle Jim aunt and Charlie went with us so warm we sweat. ??? ate their dinner on the ground and lay and slept on ground. write 1228 Ingraham St. Los Angeles CA - Mamma"
Well, I knew the Tournament of Roses parade had been around for a long time, but I did not know how long. First started in 1890, in 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed because it was getting to be a big event.
And the joy of Google Maps: 1228 Ingraham St is now a parking lot one block from Good Samaritan Hospital, and a few blocks from the 110 interstate. I bet it was a trim single family house on a quiet street in 1913.
